Hi mate, welcome!

Assuming you have submitted an application form (fully completed) to join, you would normally expect a letter calling you in for test within 2-3 weeks. If you don't get a letter before this timescale, something will be amiss- ie: application not received, contact details incorrect or incomplete, in which case, give your AFCO a ring to check they have your details recorded correctly.

What often happens, although I'm sure this doesn't include you, is that people change mobile numbers without telling us or do not write their full postal address correctly or legibly, so we have to wait until they get back in touch.

If you don't get a letter by the end of this week, just ring the AFCO to check all is in order.

Good luck, hope all goes well for you!

Mine was kinda different. I had been hassling the good people at the AFCO for months (some problem with me being a foreigner :whew: ) so the day i finished up my forms and handed in my two references, they just kinda looked through it for a bit. went..."erm, ok, seems in order. So we'll see you at the interview on such 'n such a day next week mate"
err ok cool, see you there. :money: and that was it.

I would head in there if you can after like a week, or less. I used to worry about being a bother to them by always showing up. I got over it. Now im getting results. :thumright:
what an idol eh! :dwarf: lol

Good luck.

Sorry, missed your post. Good luck with the test!

It depends how busy the AFCO are, but assuming you are 100% ready to go on PRMC, you would normally get an interview within about a week or 10 days of the test, a medical within 2-3 weeks after that if you pass interview. If you pass the medical, you have 28 days to complete the PJFT. Most AFCO's will not book your PRMC until you are confident of passing, but assuming you are completely ready now, it can be booked about 4 weeks after passing your PJFT. (Bear in mind CTC is closed 3 weeks in August). Upon successfully passing PRMC, you can get an entry date about 6-8 weeks after.

Hope it all goes well for you!

Pretty much what ive been told the timescales are however the AFCO in Norwich does the Interview and the medical on the same day to save you coming back twice.

They have also told me that its pretty much down to the applicant how quick you get through the process due to the forms etc to be filled in and booking yourself in for the PJFT-they didnt seem to pushy as they obviously understand all of us arent superfit in a couple of weeks.
When I went for RMP with the Army I was down to Pirbright selection within 2 weeks of me filling in the application form o_O I did pass and got offered the job but didnt take it as I can do MP/Provost specialisation with the RM so thats my plan :thumright: Do the GD for a couple of years then specialise,hoever if I joned the RMP all I was ever going to be was a RedCap not the 'soldiering side' as well.
 
Just as a matter of interest, when did they start doing a pre joining fitness test?

Erm, off the top of my head.....

All RN and RNR ratings candidates who pass selection interview on or after 30 Jun 03 will be required to undertake the PJFT(RN) before an application for an allocation date can be made. All existing RN Rating Candidates who have passed interview have been warned that they may be required to undertake the PJFT. Those with entry dates on or after 8 Sep 03 will be required to pass the PJFT(RN) before being allowed to join; these candidates are designated 'Transitional Candidates'.

RMOR(GD) Candidates. All RMOR(GD) candidates who pass Selection interview on or after 30 Jun 03 will be required to undertake the PJFT(RM) before an application for allocation of a PRMC can be made.

Transitional RN Candidates

The PJFT is to be completed by all transitional candidates before 31 Jan 04.

:thumright:
 
hey thanks, passed the entry exam and got the formal interview next week, things seems to be going pretty smooth and im hoping to get in before the cash from my old job runs out :p.
